Cayman Govt To Appeal SSM Court Ruling

April 5, 2019 | 5 Comments

The Cayman Islands, a fellow Overseas Territory, has something else in common with Bermuda, as their Government plans to appeal a decision handed down by the Cayman Court to legalise same-sex marriage.

This is according to a report in the Cayman Compass, which said, “Government plans to appeal the Chief Justice’s decision to legalise same-sex marriage, Premier Alden McLaughlin announced Wednesday.

“Speaking in the Legislative Assembly, the Premier said the Attorney General had been instructed to appeal the historic decision and to ask for a stay of implementation of same-sex marriage pending the result of that appeal.

“He said Government believes Chief Justice Anthony Smellie exceeded the scope of his powers when he changed the Marriage Law through his judgment on Friday. He said the chief justice had trespassed on the remit of the Legislative Assembly to write legislation.
